You may already know that visiting our Harrisburg eye doctor once per year for a comprehensive eye exam is a great idea and highly recommended by us here at Armesto Eye Associates. First of all, it allows us to determine your current vision requirements, since they are always evolving. Second, our optometrist screens you for the most common eye diseases, such as glaucoma and cataracts; ones which do not reveal any obvious symptoms until they have reached an advanced stage. But there are also very good reasons why you should reach out and schedule an appointment here between those yearly exams. Problems can occur that indicate you may need evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment. Do not ignore symptoms. They could be a sign that you have one of the previously mentioned eye diseases, or some other concern that needs to be addressed in a timely manner.

Just a few of the symptoms that you should be aware of that mean you need to be examined are blurry vision, eye redness, eye itchiness, floaters, headaches, sudden vision loss, and eye strain. It’s not possible to find just one possible cause for one or more of those, as each can point to many potential diseases, conditions, or refractive disorders. As just one example, our Harrisburg eye doctor may determine that you have conjunctivitis (pink eye) after taking tests due to your eye redness and itchiness. Or eye strain may be something as simple and easily corrected as you needing a new or updated pair of prescription lenses.

All of the above symptoms should be acted upon in a timely fashion, but of them the one that is most concerning is sudden vision loss. Depending on the reason for this, our Harrisburg eye doctor may be able to either help you recover the lost vision, or at least prevent any additional loss. If you wait, however, the window of opportunity can end up closing and you may miss out on the chance to effect a more beneficial outcome. Floaters, which are essentially spots that appear in your field of vision, are also often the sign of an eye disease that should be treated right away.

Being able to see clearly and something that many people need to consider on a regular basis, especially people who have any form of vision impairment. Many types of vision impairment can be easily treated with the help of prescription lenses, but in the case of a medical condition such as cataracts you may eventually need to consult an eye surgeon in order to get the proper treatment that you need. If you happen to be looking at getting Mechanicsburg cataract surgery then we here at Armesto Eye Associates can absolutely help you get the care they need.

Oddly enough, cataracts are often treated early on much like a common vision impairment like nearsightedness. Cataracts develop when the lens of the eye begins to thicken. The lens of the eye is otherwise known as the cornea, and very much acts like the lens of the camera. The curvature and clarity of a camera’s lens will determine how clear images the images it produces are seen as a result. Similarly, the curvature in the clarity of a cornea will affect the overall clarity of your eyesight. Differences in the curvature of your cornea will generally result in more common forms of vision impairment which is nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or anywhere in between. Problems with the thickness of your cornea however will lead to a general difficulty with eyesight seeing as the lens of your eye will become clouded and foggy as it grows sticker over time. Early on, cataracts can be treated with the help of prescription lenses, but sooner or later your corneas will look into the point where prescription lenses will not be of much help, and you may technically be blind as a result. In this case, you may need Mechanicsburg cataract surgery. Here at Armesto Eye Associates you will be in the hands of one of our expert eye surgeons can provide you with the precise care that you need in order to expertly remove your thickened corneas and replace them with artificial lenses that will provide you with the clear vision that you need.

People who have diabetes, a family medical history of cataracts, or have even experienced significant eye damage in the past may be at an increased risk of developing cataracts. Additionally, adults over the age of 65 are generally more likely to develop any number of different eye related conditions and diseases. Regardless, annual eye exams are recommended for everyone, and you may just find out that you need Mechanicsburg cataract surgery in the event that you have this condition and it has grown significantly worse. Our surgeons here at Armesto Eye Associates can identify the issue and provide you with the treatment that you need.
